Ranges between boringly bland to laughably poor
13 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

With a new term comes another football season to get through but this year a new player from England (Emma Putter) offers some hope to the team of no-hopers who's previous best player was a dog. Josh however immediately falls for his new teammate – just as his dog has fallen for her dog. As Josh frantically tries to control his hormones and still play for the team, a pair of thieves are eyeing up Air Bud as a good money spinner if they can kidnap him away from the Framm's. However things are even more complicated by the news that Air Bud is much, much better than Josh at convincing females to have sex with him and thus puppies are on the way.

Having watched one Air Bud I yet again showed the world how stubborn and stupid I am by returning to watch part 3. Obviously I was worried about how I would cope picking up the narrative having missed out on seeing Golden Retriever. Essentially the plot is a lazy mess of Home Alone criminals, dogs hitting balls with their noses and teenagers fumbling awkwardly towards their first awkward fumble. Needless to say it is a fairly uninteresting and uninspiring film that will keep your young children entertained but, when you think about it, so would a rattle snake but would you put your young 'uns in front of that? The film is boring and it pretty much falls flat at every step. The plot is rubbish; the teenage romance is bland as you like and the attempts at humour would have failed too but luckily the film decided not to even try to be funny. The sports action is same old same old and is not enough to cover all the cracks.

The cast range from the serviceable to the hilariously bad. Zegers is bland but suits this type of film as a clean-cut youth. However he performs like Orson Welles in his prime when compared to his co-lead Bouck who leads a family of bad accents with a terrible version of English that would have given Mr Fogg a run for his money in terms of how fast she takes it round the world – is it LA? English? Irish? Australian? She is cute but she wanders all over the place and the nearest she gets to English is a sort of forced posh cockney that would make Dick Van Dyke laugh. The rest of the cast are not as awful as her but nobody marks themselves out even though this is the sort of film where some adult normally gives knowing winks all the way through to at least appeal to the adult audience.

Generally rubbish then but I suppose the very young children it is aimed at will like it – but are you really so hard up for kids entertainment that you need to put them in front of this? Laughably basic at times and boringly bland at others, this is one to just ignore.
